The Zimbabwe Agricultural Welfare Trust was established in July 2001 to provide support for the beleaguered agricultural community in Zimbabwe which has taken such a large amount of unnecessary physical and mental abuse from the self-styled ‘war veterans’ and the unconstitutional actions of their own Government.
The charity has since evolved so that the bulk of our funding goes to the support and education of former farm orphans. Over the last 16 years, we have been able to finance the education, to various different levels, of 78 children. Of these, 37 wrote their O levels (15 passed), and eight wrote their A levels and succeeded in being accepted to either University or College for further education.
We continue to support the former farmers who lost everything by assisting financially those involved in the process of negotiating and establishing a fair compensation for their losses. Where possible, we also help those retired farmers in accommodation who are struggling to cover their financial requirements.

The Charity Commission of England and Wales granted us full Charitable Status in March 2002. Archbishop Desmond Tutu agreed to become our Patron and takes a keen interest in the progress of the Trust.
